Protect your data, your company, and your customers.
Does your team have the tools and the expertise to effectively protect your organization?
Each second, more than 77 terabytes of internet traffic takes place online. In the last 18 months, with the sudden and unexpected shift to a WFH/WFA environment, the world of cyber security has seen the greatest disruption of our time. Cyber crime has increased by 600% since the pandemic,* costing companies millions of dollars.
In recent years, headlines have spotlighted crippling cyberattacks against major corporations. While each corporate cyberattack resulted in millions of dollars in damages, most stories fail to mention the many data breaches that affect much softer targets: small businesses.
According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 43% of breaches impacted SMBs. You may not know when the next attack could occur, but taking proper precautions can hamper or completely overthrow a hacker’s attempt at gaining access to your network.
Defense in Depth
Defense in depth is a strategy using multiple security measures to protect the integrity of information. This way of thinking is used to cover all angles of business security – intentionally being redundant when necessary. If one line of defense is compromised, additional layers of defense are in place to ensure that threats don’t slip through the cracks. This method addresses the security vulnerabilities that inevitably exist in technology, personnel, and operations within a network.
Today’s cyberthreats are rapidly evolving. Defense in depth is a solid, comprehensive approach to utilizing a combination of advanced security tools to protect critical data and block threats before they reach their endpoint. Endpoint protection, including antivirus and firewalls, are still instrumental elements of complete security. However, a defense in depth strategy is rising significantly, as these methods of network secur
ity alone are no longer enough. The concept of defense in depth takes cybersecurity a step further by acknowledging the macro controls needed for ultimate protection, including physical, technical, and administrative aspects of the network. These three controls build the architecture of a defense in depth strategy:
Physical Controls –The security measures that protect IT systems from physical harm. Examples of physical controls include security guards and locked doors.
Technical Controls – The protection methods that secure network systems. Hardware, software, and network level protection are included within a company’s specific technical controls. Cybersecurity efforts including layered security live in this category.
Administrative Controls – The policies and procedures put in place by an organization that is directed at the employees. Training employees to make certain to label sensitive information as “confidential” or keep private files in proper folders is an example of administrative control.
